KILL BILL: VOL. 1
GO! Wednesday, 9.30pm, AV15+ ( 2003)
From the sledgehammer edits and the stately dialogue, to the shocking humour and cool- as- youlike tunes, the first volume of Quentin Tarantino’s two- pronged, East- meets- West martial arts buffet is cinema par excellence. Uma Thurman ( above) is a sight to behold as the lanky beauty who vows vengeance – after four years in a coma – upon former cohorts the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad and their boss Bill ( David Carradine) for the massacre of her bridal party. Tarantino snowballs a monumental orgy of limb- lopping violence into a piece of art. Also stars Daryl Hannah and Lucy Liu.
